Clues of B:DK's planning in the past

Saturday, February 23, 2002 5:55 AM
I was just thinking last night about B:DK. Then, I remembered something that was brought up in 2000. It was a pic on the SFNE website. I don't know whether this was discussed in the ThrillRide forums before it closed but I know I didn't see it here because unfortunatly, I didn't know of CoasterBuzz at the time. Anyways, there was a pic of Medusa East next to the list of rides. Somebody, thought that this could've been a hint that SFNE would get a floorless in the future. Well, I guess that person was correct because now SFNE is getting a floorless. Do you think this was just a coincidence or it was completely planned the whole time? Personally, I think that it was planned the whole time. And could these websites lead us to believe the future of our parks?

That doesn't mean a thing. SF loves to take pics or vids of rides at other parks and plaster them everywhere they can. Have you seen a SF commercial? SFGAm's last year had Mr Freeze and Double Loop, along with a number of other rides which I know are not at SFGAm.

I'm sure if I'd look in a brochure or something from the 2001 season of SFGAm, I'd find all kinds of instances of that sort of thing. Also, in SF parks you can buy all kinds of superhero merchandise. SFGAm sells Superman stuff, but they don't have a Superman coaster, and I've heard other parks do that, too (not only Superman, but other heros too.)

There was also mention of SFNE employees taking a trip down to Great Adventure and getting aquainted with Medusa.  This was when the "floorless, standup, invert" debate was going on.

Yes, I have seen an SFNE commercial. I thought S:RoS was gonna have inversions:(

Of course people believe it was planned because people need something to believe. Its alot easier to think that parks have it all planned out than it is to think that they just put a ride in on a whim.

Trust me, this coaster was never planned. It was bult merely to maintain public interest in the park. I was at the coaster approval meeting with the Board of Appeals in Agawam and they staed that this coaster was not on their filed materpan with the city of Springfield. Geuss that puts this one to rest...as for that photo on the website, SF puts pics of everything all over the place. Fortunately, with the new Six Flags website, this doesn't occur as much.

They don't use as many other pics on the website now because they actually have some good rides that they can show off besides S:RoS. Also, I found something on the site that I find to be not good. They apparently renamed Collossus to The Big Wheel. Maybe the webmaster doesn't know anything about the park or they are actually renaming it. Check it out for yourself here.

wtf?  What do you mean it wasn't planned?  Are you telling me that this coaster was just found magically on B&M's computers one day, and the blue prints were just magically sent to a steel manufacturing company, and then somehow the parts just ended up at SFNE, and then somehow it just assembled itself?  
Oh yeah, and then I guess the guys over at Badnitrus had the hankerin' to create a floorless coaster for SFNE, and they just happened to guess the name, layout, and location of the coaster perfectly.  Yes, this all makes perfect sense, no planning went on for this multi-million-dollar roller coaster at all.  Of course not.   
I do hope you are being sarcastic or something.

It takes a while for a park to buy a ride, have someone design it, have it fabricated, and then build it.  I can assure you, a lot of planning went on well in advance.
